Update on in-person start dates

KFCS News Flash Link: Information You Need to Know 10/9/2020


 

Dear Guardians and Staff,

Due to higher than allowed COVID new case numbers in Klamath County last week, we must delay in-person learning in our schools at least three more weeks. This means the earliest we could bring students back to half-day in-person learning is the week of October 26. Should we have three weeks of lower new COVID infections, we plan to have students return to school on Wednesday, October 28. Homes would be contacted late Monday, 10/26, or early Tuesday, 10/27, as to the status of being able to begin in-person learning on Wednesday, 10/28. Thank you for your patience.

Paul Hillyer, KFCS Superintendent


 

Additional Note:

If you are confused about what it takes to have students be able to be in school for regular in-person learning, here is an explanation:

To start grades K-3 in person we must have 21 or fewer new cases per week for 3 consecutive weeks in Klamath County. We also must have a 5% or less positivity rate on COVID tests in the county for those weeks to qualify. For grades 4-12 to start in person we must have 7 or fewer new cases per week for three consecutive weeks along with a 5% or less positivity rate in the county and the state for those weeks. 

The Klamath County schools have some K-3 in person learning happening two days per week per student since they chose to do this from the start of the school year. It is easier to keep students in school once they are there than it is to qualify to get them in school if they are not currently doing in-person classes. Some of their rural and remote schools have been given an exception from the state to have in-person learning though our county metrics are not favorable.  

We do have some students coming in now for some limited in-person learning for special purposes. This does not replace, however, their comprehensive distance learning instruction.

Oregon Department of Education Operational Blueprint for
School Reentry 2020-21

Under ODE’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance, each school has been directed to submit a plan to the district in order to provide on-site and/or hybrid instruction. Districts must submit each school’s plan to the local school board and make the plans available to the public. This form is to be used to document a district’s, school’s or program’s plan to ensure students can return for the 2020-21 school year, in some form, in accordance with Executive Order 20-25(10). Schools must use the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance document as they complete their Operational Blueprint for Reentry. ODE recommends plan development be inclusive of, but not limited to school-based administrators, teachers and school staff, health and nursing staff, association leadership, nutrition services, transportation services, tribal consultation, parents and others for purposes of providing expertise, developing broad understanding of the health protocols and carrying out plan implementation.

  • Flow charts will be sent to their supervisor for approval before submitting to the superintendent.
